Pinguicula debbertiana is a Mexican Butterwort native to the state of San Luis Potosí. While the summer rosette is similar to that of P. ehlersiae, the winter blooms are noticeably different in appearance and have the ability to close at night. P. debbertiana was discovered by German botanist, Paul Debbert in 1989 and formally described by Franz Speta in 1992. This plant prefers a loose mineral-based substrate that drains easily.
